Main features of DocsGPT showcasing six main features

Project Structure

  • Application - Flask app (main application).

  • Extensions - Chrome extension.

  • Scripts - Script that creates similarity search index for other libraries.

  • Frontend - Frontend uses Vite and React.


[!Note] Make sure you have Docker installed

On Mac OS or Linux, write:


It will install all the dependencies and allow you to download the local model, use OpenAI or use our LLM API.

Otherwise, refer to this Guide for Windows:

  1. Download and open this repository with git clone

  2. Create a .env file in your root directory and set the env variables and VITE_API_STREAMING to true or false, depending on whether you want streaming answers or not. It should look like this inside:

    LLM_NAME=[docsgpt or openai or others] 
    API_KEY=[if LLM_NAME is openai]

    See optional environment variables in the /.env-template and /application/.env_sample files.

  3. Run ./

  4. Navigate to http://localhost:5173/.

To stop, just run Ctrl + C.

Development Environments

Spin up Mongo and Redis

For development, only two containers are used from docker-compose.yaml (by deleting all services except for Redis and Mongo). See file docker-compose-dev.yaml.


docker compose -f docker-compose-dev.yaml build
docker compose -f docker-compose-dev.yaml up -d

Run the Backend

[!Note] Make sure you have Python 3.10 or 3.11 installed.

  1. Export required environment variables or prepare a .env file in the project folder:

(check out application/core/ if you want to see more config options.)

  1. (optional) Create a Python virtual environment: You can follow the Python official documentation for virtual environments.

a) On Mac OS and Linux

python -m venv venv
. venv/bin/activate

b) On Windows

python -m venv venv
  1. Download embedding model and save it in the model/ folder: You can use the script below, or download it manually from here, unzip it and save it in the model/ folder.
unzip -d model
  1. Install dependencies for the backend:
pip install -r application/requirements.txt
  1. Run the app using flask --app application/ run --host= --port=7091.
  2. Start worker with celery -A worker -l INFO.

Start Frontend

[!Note] Make sure you have Node version 16 or higher.

  1. Navigate to the /frontend folder.
  2. Install the required packages husky and vite (ignore if already installed).
npm install husky -g
